What is Britain's Energy Coast?
It uses its commercial knowledge skill-set to generate profit surplus. That surplus is ploughed back into the area around BEC’s Cumbrian headquarters. You can find out more of the types of projects we support here.
BEC brings about positive change in property projects by using strategic property interventions. Please click here to read more about our work in this area.
We also own and operate Westlakes Science & Technology Park, a successful commercial development near Whitehaven in Cumbria. To find out more about the park or to view available space, please visit this page.
Britain’s Energy Coast, as it is formed today, grew out of a series of regeneration and economic development companies designed to boost the economies of Allerdale and Copeland. The company previously bolstered its commercial revenues with direct funding from the nuclear sector. In 2016, BEC became a fully commercial operation. It supplements its income by strategically applying for funding to support projects that will bring local benefit, often in the low carbon arena.
BEC is able to commercially operate anywhere, but we always bring the financial benefits back to Allerdale and Copeland in Cumbria, UK.
BEC is owned by Copeland Borough Council, Allerdale Borough Council and Cumbria County Council, along with the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, which is headquartered in the borough of Copeland. The BEC team work closely with a number of key local partners including the Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership.
